Join the professional team from Sydney Harbour Kayaks on a very special 90 minute night-time sea kayaking tour.
Sydney Vivid Moonlight Kayaking Experience
As the sun sets over Sydney and we cast off in our kayaks, watch the city come to life and illuminate around you from your floating vantage point. Our leisurely paddle loop starts at the Australian National Maritime Museum, Darling Harbour.
These provide a rare opportunity to paddle through Darling Harbour on a moonlit adventure that allows you to experience Sydney’s VIVID Festival from a unique and crowd-free perspective.
Our expert kayak guides will take you up close to a myriad of Darling Harbour attractions, including Harbour LIFE – A celebration of Australia's harbour beauty and the importance of utilising First Nations knowledge and maritime management practices alongside new technology in conservation efforts, Harbour Life is a moving story of the underwater world's resilience - displayed on the roof of the Maritime Museum and on the side of HMAS Vampire, and Elemental takes us on a journey from the origins of our planet, through the ages that have defined our land and waterways and delivers us to the world we call home.
We will then head back into the heart of Darling Harbour, passing the city lights where we will find somewhere nice and sheltered where some light snacks and refreshments will be served, and here you can enjoy a moment taking in the evening view and get some more amazing photos.
Join us and take this unique and rare opportunity to paddle through Sydney’s iconic Harbour under the moonlight and experience our city like never before.
The sea kayaks that we will be paddling in are a Mirage Sea Kayaks Touring double - they are very stable and have a wonderful glide.
This tour is suitable for beginner paddlers, however, paddling experience is recommended.
Everyone will be grouped into double (2 person) kayaks. If there is an odd-numbered tour, then the lead guide will determine the person that will paddle in the single kayak (generally the strongest paddler of the entire group).
